You could (and in any case probably should) use a user who has very
restricted permissions (e.g. only write access to that directory tree, and
nothing else).

There are directory sync applications that do this quite nicely. You
probably can work something out with using cvsnt commit scripts or shadow
file to keep a sandbox on the server up to date, and use a directory sync
application to replicate this sandbox to a remote share. (This sync app
would also need to have a user configured that it uses to connect to the
remote share; this should be the same restricted user I was talking about
